ENCAUSTIC TILES – CLEANING & SEALING

Aqua-Seal STS offers Pre-Grout Sealing, Sealing, Maintenance and Restoration specifications. These are listed below for your convenience.
The timeless beauty of Encaustic Tiles has made this material a favourite choice. Encaustic Tiles are handmade cement tiles using century old traditional methods. The tiles are made one at a time by hydraulic press in which the pattern or figure of different colours of clay is pressed into the surface. It is not a glaze or a paint on the surface. This traditional production process creates both beauty and character and means each tile is unique and interesting. Being handmade means there will always be some slight imperfections, irregular edges, variations of shade and size. Due to the high content of calcium carbonate, Encaustic Tiles are susceptible to traffic wear patterns plus etching from acid based contaminants eg wine, citrus, soft drinks etc.
